Merry Christmas!

We put up the tree a few weeks ago and took these pictures of Brady. I felt a little bit sheepish posting Christmas tree pictures prior to Thanksgiving.

Take me to the Zoo

"Put me in the zoo, I want to see it, yes I do." These are the first words to one of Brady's favorite books. Brady hasn't been to the zoo since about this time last year. He was certainly much more aware of the animals this time. He studied them carefully and made the appropriate sounds for each animal.

Happy Thankgiving - Birthday

Papa's 71st birthday fell on Thanksgiving day this year; we didn't have a 7, so the cake has 611. Here are a few pictures from our visit to the Bowers. Brady and Luke were pretty cute playing together.

A Day in the Life

Brady looked cute in his little Rockets hat.
He threw a small fit in the middle of play time.
The moment we walk in the door, Brady wants to start eating bread.
Sometimes Mama is me and sometimes Mama means Elmo. Here's a picture of Brady wearing his Elmo bath towel.

Happy Birthday Luke!

Luke's 2nd birthday had a Cars theme. The cake was pretty cute.
Brady liked playing with the balloons.
Luke (and Brady) are old enough to be interested in presents now.
It was cute to see the three little ones playing together.
I seem to catch a lot of action shots of Brianna. She's certainly full of energy!
It's really cute to see Brianna tickle and play with Brady.

New Tricks

Brady got this whistle a few weeks ago. He usually puts his mouth to it and hums, but tonight he learned to blow! I was washing dishes and heard Brady blow his little whistle. I screamed and ran into the dining room to give him a hug, while he laughed with pride. I would take more videos of Brady, but he generally tries to take the flip camera away from me.

Woof Woof Neigh Neigh

Pappaw was a Rolling Stone

I'm slowly catching up on our video updates. Brady had a lot of fun playing with his Pappaw's phone. I think this video was about 3 weeks ago. I've been amazed at how our home has changed since Brady. Since this video was taken, the wicker drawers have moved next to the couch and the coffee table moved out (to make way for Brady's new table).

An average Tuesday's play

In our dining room, we have this cube shelf that stores a few baskets of Brady's toys. I've had this shelf since high school!
Brady's car was at the bottom of the basket.
This little table has been in the family for over 20 years! My parents bought it for Megan and I. Our twin cousins Sam and Sara used it for quite a few years before passing it to Brianna and Luke. It just came back to us this weekend. It's the perfect size for Brady.
It works well for rolling your car around.
As I sit here and type, Brady's hugging Bailey and saying "aww". He touches Bailey's ear, laughs and hugs him again. I'm so fortunate to have such a sweet family.
